MICK MARIETTA IS IN A NURSING HOME WHERE HE WILL REMAIN FOR THE REST OF HIS LIFE AFTER A STROKE. HE WOULD ENJOY PHONE CALLS FROM HIS CHILDHOOD FRIENDS TO CHEER HIM UP. His number is 573 885-4500, ask for Mick Marietta. It may be difficult to communicate with him. Mail address is Cuba Manor, 210 Eldon Drive, Cuba, MO 65453.


We seem to all be suffering a common problem these days, WHERE DID OUR LIVES GO? Our brains seem to still be 18, but our bodies are talking a different language. Sarah Orne Jewett puts it much more eloquently than do I:

“Neither of my companions was troubled by her burden of years. I hoped in my heart that I might be like them as I lived on into age, and then smiled to think that I too was no longer very young. So we always keep the same hearts, though our outer framework fails and shows the touch of time.”

Dr. George Beltz dies at age 90

I imagine you Nipherites will doubtless remember George Beltz, known to us as Mr. Beltz, not Doctor.  Funny about that...but perhaps he earned his PhD after we were at Nipher.  From Webster Kirkwood Times, and courtesy of Pat Corpening Hoag, comes his obituary.

Dr. George W. Beltz

Died: Tuesday, July 25, 2017
Age: 90
Beltz, Dr. George W., longtime resident of Kirkwood, Mo., died peacefully in his home in Steelville, Mo., on July 25, 2017. He was 90 years old.

George was preceded in death by his wife of 62 years, Dorothy Sager Beltz. George is survived by his children and grandchildren: son George Sager Beltz and grandson Connor Jason Swan of Tulsa, Okla.; daughter Jessica Beltz-Mohrmann, son-in-law Al Mohrmann, and granddaughter Gillian Beltz-Mohrmann of North Plainfield, N.J.

George earned his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in physical education and English from Southern Illinois University Carbondale (SIU). He received his doctorate in education from St. Louis University.

He met his future bride, Dorothy, at SIU and married her in 1948. He was a career educator. George was a coach, teacher, and then administrator for Nipher Junior High School (Kirkwood), East Ladue Junior High School and Clayton High School.

George was a loving and lovely man who was a gentleman to his core. He will greatly be missed by his family and friends.

In lieu of flowers, memorials are appreciated to Webster Groves Christian Church. Additional condolences and memories may be shared online at www.valhallagardensandfuneralhome.com.

Memorial visitation: Friends and family may visit with one another from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 5, 2017, at Webster Groves Christian Church, located at 1320 W. Lockwood Ave., St, Louis, Mo. 63122.

A memorial service will begin immediately following the visitation at 12:30 p.m. with Rev. Dr. Jeff Moore Sr. officiating. Interment will follow in Valhalla Gardens of Memory Cemetery, 3412 Frank Scott Parkway, Belleville, Ill. 62223.
